5K Training Running Activity 3.26 miles

I hit the treadmill around 2:10 this afternoon, not really expecting to finish my run because of not feeling well yesterday. But I ended up running my fastest time for the 5K distance so far - 27:47.

I still run with Outcast playing in my Sansa player. The earlier albums are perfect for my pace.

Today's run time was 30 minutes total and I finished 3.26 miles. Overall, it was a good run. I have to change my heart monitor's "high" zone to be 185 instead of 180. I stayed around 160 for the first 2 miles and then hovered around 176 for the last mile. At the very end of the run, I hit 180 a couple of times because I was changing from shorter to longer strides.

Next run planned for Saturday. I'm going for 5 miles.

Mercy Is The Only Way Out

I was listening to music while writing code/programming and this song came one and totally gripped my heart.

Andra Day's voice is amazing and the music's irregular nature drew me into the depths of the lyrics.

It's like Andra Day is speaking to me and speaking for me at the same time in this song when she sings...

I can't hear love 'cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
(I can't hear love 'cause we're at war)
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out

Props to the writers, Cassandra Monique Batie and Dave Wood.

Powerful, amazing, awesome song.

Oklahoma City Tornadoes Friday May 31 2013

We have been under extreme weather most of the week, but today was like the finale of a fireworks display. We had reports of four different tornadoes moving towards the OKC metro area. The biggest tornado was in El Reno and it was reported to be an EF5 at least 2.5 miles wide. Three other tornadoes seemed to move down I-40 during rush hour with traffic backed up in all directions around the OKC area. One tornado approached the city of Moore, Oklahoma - still devastated by the tornado that hit May 20th. We have been getting flash flood warnings a good part of the evenings as well.

Midday Vibe Piano Freestyle Video

This is one of my piano freestyle videos. This is what I do to train my ear and develop keyboarding skills.

One of the most rewarding things for me when I make Moody Instrumental Music is what I call the "learning journey." I didn't start out knowing how to make beats, produce music, play piano or keyboard, use Propellerhead Reasonn, use the Akai MPD32, record videos, or create beautiful music from the rough ideas in my head. My "learning journey" is what has allowed me to do all of what I do musically. The journey has been long - more than a decade now - but my music clearly prooves that the journey is worth it.
